there. at congressional hearings this week charlene lamb and eric nordstrom confirmed there were requests for more security. are you surprised biden's statement? >> there are 100 explanations we have gotten from them. isn't that stunning compared to what we have seen in the last four weeks. it is another reason why they are offering alternative on foreign policy american strengths and values. >> how dowdy fend vice president's comments on benghazi? >> i think the vice president made a very important point. there is an investigation underway right now so we can find out exactly what happened and if there were mistakes made. we shouldn't politicize the issue we should wait until it comes through. if people should be held accountable they should be. the president has been very tough on terrorists around the world, osama bin laden all of the top opportunities has been taken out the one responsible for the kenyan embassy bombing. the president has been tough. these attacks on the president's foreign policy record are unfair. >> the two candidates had conflicting statements on medicare
it back. it turns out not true. listen to charlene lamb. >> it has been suggested that the budget cuts were responsible for lack of security in benghazi. i'd like to ask miss lamb, you made this decision personally. was there any budget consideration and lack of budget that led you not to increase the number of people in security force there? >> no, sir. >> dana: if you are in a crisis communication situation, you typically want your answers in a row before you go forward instead of repeating things. the situation the white house finds themselves was preventable. but instead they have the deputy campaign manager saying this is political. i looked to me like the reporters were finally starting to do what they needed to be doing, asking them questions they could have asked three weeks ago. >> andrea: the entire thing is political. here is what doesn't add up. if joe biden is going to shirk responsibility and say it wasn't us and blame the intelligence community for bad intel, the state department said we knew all along it was a terrorist attack. if i'm the president of the united states

for those resources, yes. >> back in washington charlene lamb said no. >> sir, we had the correct number of as pesets in benghazi the time for 9/11 for what was agreed upon. >> saying you had the correct number and our ambassador and three other individuals are dead and people are in the hospital recovering because it take moments to breach that facility doesn't ring true. >> the state department says two u.s. compounds were hit that night. one by a mortar that killed navy s.e.a.l.s trying to save the ambassador. i'm steve handlesman, nbc news, washington. >>> the man behind the anti-islamic world that angered the islamic world was in a california courtroom today in connection with with a bank fraud today. he strilted his probation for a 2010 conviction on federal bank fraud. he's accused of eight violations including a computer, lying to his probation officer and using alias. he's been jailed without bond since his arrest two weeks ago when a judge labeled him a flight risk. >>> in pakistan today an outpowering of prayer and support for 14-year-old schoolgirl shot by the taliban as she
testimony, we asked charlene lamb, who is in charge of the embassies and security, and we asked her, was there denial of more personnel in libya a result of a lack of funding? she said. no it's a red herring. something they put out there as a strawman to try to distract. when your budget is increased 118% over five years you have to make priorities, you have to make choices. we have over 6,000 private contractors in baghdad and, yet, we barely have two dozen in libya. >> laura: are you going to bring susan rice to capitol hill to testify. >> i want to hear from the president. i want to hear from secretary clinton. i want to hear from ambassador rice and i want the intelligence community to be able to voice this out because i think the administration should have known beforehand that this was going to happen. >> laura: congressman, thank you so much. directly ahead, things got prettied heated last night when the candidates discussed afghanistan. herald -- geraldo is going to way. in did martha raddatz bring up the abortion issue last night to reignite the war on women debate? those r

head of the security. regional security office charlene lamb. she testified about pulling those out based on her orders to get them out based on normalization efforts. we asked what that is. that's an effort to try to make things normalize with the libyan population. basically, that's an effort to make sure that the situation was okay between the libyan population and the ambassador and the people on the ground. even though the situation was extremely volatile. the ambassador knew that it was getting worse by the day. and the security situation was not changing. yet, the state department did not put more people in. what we're going to also show you. >> bill: downgraded the security and i know because i read the transcript of some of your stuff you actually have one of the security guys saying it was insane to do that you don't downgrade security when it's so dangerous. all right. but we also have palkot on the ground in the compound in benghazi. you are going to see things. he will take you through the compound. >> bill: that's interesting. >> you haven't seen the distance between -
of state. the testimony on capitol hill indicated i believe charlene lamb, one of the undersecretaries in charge said it got the as high as her and she made a determination. i add there's an important distinction between tripoli, the capital, and benghazi. according to the testimony, even with additional forces in place, remember, additional forces, the question was for tripoli, not benghazi, that the heavy armor could not have been stopped by a fewer additional men on the ground. >> did you want to say -- >> some element of added security would have stayed with the embassador. he's the person -- >> he asked for more body guards. >> exactly. we can't know what effect that would have had on that night that, dreadful night in benghazi. the second point is the woman at the state department who made the call was acting, the framework of policy. the policy toward libya was, attitude was, this was now a country of friendlies. we helped depose the hated dictator and we normalized the situation, we had good ties. libya was a success story. so the idea of sending in extra security because the p
